    We booked train tickets from Beijing to Xian and Xian to Shanghai from the site TravelChinaGuide.com. We chose their delivery service. When we reached our hotel, the hotel staff gave us the paper tickets. Their booking service is amazing.

    Thank you so much for the refund. We appreciate all your hard work and send you our best wishes. We hope that we can visit China at another time. The UK is now in lock down and the situation is getting much worse. We pray everything will be better. Stay safe and best wishes to you and your company.

    We booked several tickets with TravelChinaGuide last December, but we offered wrong email address when submitting the booking by mistake. After the tickets were confirmed, they called us several times, but we did not pick up, then they tried message us, which made us impressed and moved about this excellent service. Give them a high 10!!!

    We booked several high speed train tickets from Hong Kong west Kowloon to Shenzhen North. However, we had to cancel our trip due to the breakout of Covid-19. I found TravelChinaGuide a very reliable website to use. In fact they contact me first about the train cancellation and city shutdown, so we decided to ask for a refund of booking. Thank you for your good and honest service.

    Unfortunately I had to cancel my ticket as it was not possible for me to travel to China due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and flight changes from New Zealand. I appreciate your kind help and refund. We are looking forward to booking with you again when everything is back to normal. Thank you very much.

    I want to say thank you for your help about my train booking. I didn’t realize my passport number is wrong. It caused so many troubles at the station. With the kind help of josey, we cancelled the wrong one and the staff booked a new ticket and we can catch the train on time. Thank you so much!
